“I began working with Cara to help me with problems I was having with cramping and low energy levels during long distance triathlons (70.3 and Full Ironmans). Using Cara’s guidance and input on my nutrition for both my training as well as in race I was able to set personal best times in both disciplines. Cara was great to work with and provided all information in an approachable and actionable format.”

Meet Cara

Hi there, I’m Cara! I’m a Registered Dietitian, marathon runner, and mom to two little kiddos. Some of my greatest joys include living an active lifestyle, and creating and enjoying delicious and nourishing food with the people I love. So it’s no wonder that this translates into what I do for a living! 

I first developed an interest in nutrition as a high school runner and grew passionate about how whole foods can best nourish and fuel the body for sport and performance. This interest propelled me into my career as a dietitian and I have completed specialized sport nutrition training and courses through Dietitians of Canada. As a nutrition student and early in my profession, I thought eating well as an athlete was all about restriction, deprivation, and following a prescribed plan. Adhering to this type of eating myself – I often felt miserable, obsessed over what I ate and expended loads of energy worrying about everything I put in my mouth. I often didn’t enjoy eating socially or doing anything that deviated from my “plan”.  This led to many negative outcomes – both in how I felt and how I was able to perform. I knew there had to be a better way.

Overtime, I came to realize that eating as an athlete means fueling your body with what it needs (and it isn’t always just vegetables and low-cal fluff!), listening to and respecting what your body is telling you, truly enjoying delicious and nourishing food, and most of all, appreciating all that our bodies do for us!  I now realize how powerful a good relationship with food and body is, and how it can truly help you perform and feel your best.

I am committed to helping you find an individualized approach that works for your life, takes the confusion and chaos out of eating, nourishes you, and cultivates a healthy relationship with food – in addition to helping you perform at your best.  Ultimately, I want to help you achieve your goals – both in sport and in life!
